In addition, Abdul confirmed that she's been in touch with So You Think You Can Dance lead judge and executive producer Nigel Lythgoe -- who previously produced the first seven seasons of Idol -- to appear on the dance-themed reality series sixth season this fall.
"Nigel has offered... I don't know yet," she told Access Hollywood. "I'm a big fan of the show. It's fantastic, and I wouldn't be surprised if I maybe came in and guest judged, but I don't know the details of any of that."
Abdul announced last month via her Twitter page that she would not be returning for Idol's upcoming ninth season after the three-year contract she signed with Fox in March 2006 expired this past spring.
In addition to a Vegas show and possible So You Think You Can Dance guest judging role, Abdul recently stated she will appear in at least two episodes of Lifetime's scripted Drop Dead Diva drama this fall.
